THE ÆOLIAN QUARTET:
Mildred Watson (soprano); Freda Townson (contralto) ; Parry Jones
(tenor) ; Kenneth Ellis (bass)
The central idea of this compiled programme of Mendelssohn's oratorio music is the Mercy of God. And its title is a quotation from the first couplet of a number from his cantata ' Lauda Sion ' which reads
' Sing of Judgment, sing of mercies
Praise the Lord in joyful Verses.'
The whole of this work being appro priate to the subject, it is to be performed in its entirety. It was a posthumous work for Solo Quartet and chorus written for the Church of St. Martin, Liege. The quartet ' 0 come everyone that thirsteth ' from ' Elijah ' is next sung. Following this comes the tenor aria, and its pendant chorus ' He counteth all your sorrows ' -from the ' Hymn of Praise', and then the complete setting of the ' Thirteenth Psalm ', the metrical version by the Rev J. Troutbeck , ' Lord how long wil Thou forget me ? '. This is for contralto solo and chorus.
Finally, there are two deservedly popular numbers from ' Saint Paul ', first performed in England at Liverpool in 1836 under Sir George Smart. These are the bass aria ' I praise Thee 0 Lord my God, for great is Thy mercy toward me ', with the chorus which follows ' The Lord He is good ', and as a brilliant finale the majestic chorus ' 0 great is the depth ', one of the greatest choruses Mendelssohn ever wrote.
The programme will be presented with the usual organ links arranged by Berkeley Mason .

About this project

This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.

We hope it helps you find information about that long forgotten BBC programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement with the BBC.

Through the listings, you will also be able to use the Genome search function to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time - not those of today.
